Sutra 1.23

ईश्वरप्रणिधानाद्वा॥२३॥

Ishvara-prani-dhaanaat-vaa॥२३॥

Continuing to explain the process and techniques to access/reach ‘Godness’, Ishvara (Pure Consciousness – the Infinite and Unmanifest Energy which we often refer to as ‘God’), this sutra encourages the constant, committed and sincere practices that move us towards this goal.

  • ishvara = creative source, pure consciousness, purusha, God, supreme Guru or teacher

  • pranidhana = practicing the presence, sincerity, dedication, devotion, surrender of fruits of practice

  • va = or
